Punto Press, affiliated with The Greanville Post, has just published a much awaited history/memoir by Ron Ridenour, an anti-imperialist fighter, radical journalist, and author whose uncompromising trajectory spans six decades and three continents, with first-hand experiences in Cuba, Nicaragua, Europe and naturally the country of his birth, the United States. A life spent struggling for justice and peace is a life morally well lived.In The Russian Peace Threat—Pentagon on Alert, whose focus is the century-old tug of war between two deeply antithetical societies, the US and Russia, Ridenour has not only provided activists and the public at large a dependable and compelling history that is aimed at dissolving the thick layers of disinformation and ignorance still keeping the two nations apart, but a wealth of details and insights seldom found in comparable works, written by a man who does not pretend to a non-existent “objectivity” but simple, liberating truth. The chapter presented below tackles a supremely important subject, American exceptionalism, the fount of many evils in our modern world. Since this is a peculiar American phenomenon, it is incumbent upon Americans to learn what it is, and how it affects their lives and the lives of countless people around the world. It is a critical step in humanity’s struggle to move this planet toward a far more humane and just order. —PG
